The article discusses the dilemmas of Globalisation. Globalisation is seen as a global compression-integration as it reduces the time and cost of transport and communication and demolates the artificial barriers to the international circulation of goods, services, capital, knowledge, of people and of labour. The process brings about the industrial nations closer and it is their economic institutions whose norms are followed. There is catching this cosmopolitation where the local population would go by its cultural traditions. Some Asian countries object to the western influence, but in a way it helps the lesser developed countries by the way of industrialisation.
